Dan Harden and Roy Goldberg in Massachusetts Nov 11-13

Postby Bodywork on Fri Apr 22, 2016 10:31 am

Ancient traditions and modern combatives
Aiki-two sides of the same coin
Roy is a 7th Dan and Kyoju Dairi. The only westerner to hold such Ranks in Daito ryu. He and Dan will be presenting for the first time, their personal work and exploration of Daito ryu.
Participants will explore:
*The foundational bodywork and breath training in Daito ryu.
*The solo work to kata
*The traditional pathway of waza and how the body work supports technique
*Advanced applications for use in more stressful environments.

The location will be in central Massachusetts, however the venue will be fluid dependent on the numbers who sign up. Space will be limited.
Cost are $300.00 for all three days.
Please contact Dan Harden by email at: [email protected]

Further information will be placed on Dan's website

He has expressed an interest in England and the continent.
He doesn't do many seminars. He just wasn't interested. He's semi-retired now, so I am trying to drag him out to teach the art and also to show what we have been doing together. We'll see how that goes after we do a seminar.

Roy and I have shared many laughs over the antics of the many internet jocky DR defenders on Aikiweb and E-budo. Guys who patted each other on the back and pounded their chests over their "legitimacy" and low level rank, taunted and chastised, all in an attempt to shut down and control the conversation. Then you had the forum moderators and owners who supported them!
It really is funny to see men talking out of their ass repeatedly...!
Its going to be even more comical considering that those same guys?
They based the legitimacy and authority of their entire argument over?
Rank and affiliation!
Which will leave them no basis for an argument and no where to go, later this year.
Then their real agenda will shine through.
What did I say through the years?
"The truth, will out!"

Hey, I have to say that it seems like a really reasonable rate for three days in FL. More like bar money for some. I don''t know anything about aiki arts, but I think anyone who wanted to know more would find the opportunity hard to resist.

Thanks, Steve
Travel, hotels, food and expenses on our end, plus splitting the gate!!
Aiki:
To have it make sense, think of aiki like the internals and the expression of them in jins in internal arts.
Just like the Chinese version; the vast majority in the Japanese arts don't really have much, and what little they have, they learned only to express in techniques. They have never felt it or seen it used in a more aggressive and free format. Further, they idea of aiki being a stand alone skill from the body outward they have never learned. What makes matters worse is that the highest level people talked about, but very few ever really taught it.
It is very rare (really all but unheard of) to see guys show up and do both.

Oh, it's just that I know lots of people who've paid substantially more for substantially less time. For those who make claims it seems like an opportunity they couldn't afford to miss. Best of luck with the event (though I'm sure it's unnecessary).

It's really, old news for many in the Japanese community. A BTDT thing.
I keep trying to bring in more of the high level traditional guys from different arts, so that people can see it expressed in their art, then see it without a fixed form. Goldberg is among the highest level in certain aiki circles. So again, it helps move the discussion forward in a clean environment.

That would be great :) I wish you all the best with the seminar! I hope it will be a smash hit, and that some who attend write their impressions on it for the rest of us.

Sounds like a great event, if it were anywhere near me I would be there for sure. Agree with Steve on the very reasonable price.

Please keep future posts on this thread directly related to the specific event itself, the training offered there, and people's experience at the seminar.

Several posts obscuring and derailing this event thread have been moved to their own thread in BTDT. Continue that discussion there, via PM, or better yet just stop it. Certain individual posters (note that is plural, John) have been communicated with in connection with this request.

Thank you.

Well, this isn't directly related to the event (sorry :)), but I enjoyed watching this video about Hayawo Kiyama (mostly Roy Goldberg talking):

Roy has just received the third scroll: hiden Ogi (secret mysteries)
This marks him as one of few in the Daito school to have received this honor and thee, only, Westerner (non-Japanese) to have achieved 7th Dan and the third scroll.
Congratulations to Roy.
